Stuff That Really Grinds My Gears

So, Cameron being the good husband that he is decided to take me to see the movie Twilight tonight. I was super excited because I am a fan of all the books. Anyways, so we get to the theater like ten minutes early and we were the only ones in the theater. Like any normal human being we sat in the second row of the higher seats so we could put our feet on the bar. Well, this lady comes in and was searching the theater as if it was a full house and then she tells us she and her 2 friends are going to sit in front of the bar. So, we put our feet down as to now bother her. Well, about 2 minutes later I guess she changed her mind about where to sit so she moves (now, remember it's just Cameron, her, and I in the theater). She decides to sit right next to me and Cameron... What the heck? Hasn't she heard of personal space? HAHA Mostly it was funny, and I just felt like I would share that random story with you all. But seriously, if there are only two other people in the theater don't sit right next to them. :)

Black Friday

So, I have never really been a big fan of shopping. After about thirty minutes of shopping I get a disease, I call it "Mall-Sick". This is a real problem for me and when I am shopping it hits me unexpectedly. Yet there are people who are crazy enough to wake up at 4:00AM just to deal with way more people than necessary, crazy huge lines, and just shopping in general. Yep, you guessed it I am talking about the crazy "Day-after-Thanksgiving" shopping craze! I have never been apart of this loony-ness. But, last Friday when sitting with my family I was convinced that if I went to the outlets at Park City on Thursday night at midnight there really wouldn't be that many people. They were wrong. I never been in a shopping center that was so full of people! Every parking spot was filled and every line was at least 20 minutes long! I personally stood in line at the j. crew store of 45 minutes, by the time my mom and I checked out I had a new little group of friends. It was definatly a good experience and I did gets some sweet stuff for the Christmas season but I doubt I will go shopping on Black Friday for a very long time!!

Here are some photos of the crazy traffic before we even got into the parking lot. It was backed up in every direction you could see! It took us longer to get from the freeway exit to the outlets than to get from Sundance to Park City.
